Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Eight coalition members were killed and 14 others wounded when their helicopter had a "sudden, unexplained loss of power and control" and crashed in southeastern Afghanistan on Sunday, military officials said.

    All eight were U.S. personnel, according to news wire reports.

    The CH-47 Chinook was transporting 22 people, including crew, at the time of the crash.

    Rescuers found the 14 injured passengers after launching a search operation and transported them to the hospital.

    The crew initially indicated they had engine failure, an earlier statement said.
